Cheshch! That is “hello” in Polish. I am trying to practice as we take on the monumental task of learning Polish as a family. With the adoption process moving forward, this is the next step! Our dossier is complete and 5 months of paperwork is behind us, and since we will be in Poland for 6 weeks (eventually), we need to prepare. My brain has a difficult time with this language in particular. I know some French, a little Spanish, and I can pick up a fair amount in Italian. Polish however has been a brain buster for me.
Anyone want to take a shot at this?: Przepraszam, gdzie jest toaleta?
That means: Where is the toilet, please?
Here’s another one: “I would like to order a wake-up call for 6:00” .
Translation to Polish: ” (a)bym zamowic budzenie na godzin´ szosta.”
Say whaa?! Lol. I guess the good thing, is that we will be in the same boat as a family, and hopefully we can learn and practice together. We have ordered level 1 of Rosetta Stone- Polish. I have always wondered if it worked…I guess we’ll find out!
In the meantime, I’ve been spending time on websites like Live Mocha, where they offer free lessons. My brain is tired and my eyes are sleepy (or in other words: Chce mi si´ spaç. Jestem Êpiàcy (Êpiàca)). Can copy/paste that…just don’t ask me to say it. 🙂
